Places of inquiry : research and advanced education in modern universities by Burton R Clark( )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2020 in English and German and held by 1,685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, the second in a two-volume work, builds on an international study of the research university in Germany, Britain, France, the United States and Japan, to explore the role and function of the research university and the relationship between teaching, research and graduate study. Part 1 lays the foundation for comparative analysis by depicting national configurations of advanced education and research organization. Chapter 1 establishes the 19th Century baseline for cross-national comparison by depicting how German universities developed and expressed a research outlook. Chapter 2 depicts the evolution and current structure of British higher education that highlights the strain placed on "post-graduate" education and its research underpinnings by nationalization of previously autonomous universities. Chapter 3 considers research activity and training within the high exceptionalism of French higher education. Chapter 4 looks at the United States and its competitive graduate schools; chapter 5 at the relationship between graduate education and industry in Japan. In Part 2 the concept of a research-teaching-study nexus is established as an organizing idea. Chapter 6 sets forth fragmenting forces. Chapter 7 examines current versions of the Humboldtian ideal. The final chapter points to the necessity of basing analysis and reform on a knowledge or inquiry model of modern systems of higher education. An index is included.

The distinctive college: Antioch, Reed & Swarthmore by Burton R Clark( Book )

19 editions published between 1970 and 2017 in English and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The factors contributing to the greatness of a first-rank liberal arts college are difficult to analyze. Hidden from view in the mysteries of tradition and institutional aura, the insistent questions remain: How has it been done? Can it still be done? In an intensive analysis of three highly regarded liberal arts colleges, Burton R. Clark uses a developmental approach to formal organization to seek out answers to these questions. The author begins with a presentation of the historical development of three colleges, Antioch, Reed, and Swarthmore. He describes in detail how broad institutional innovations were introduced and made to endure. In its empirical findings and conceptual formulations, The Distinctive College, first published in 1970, has played an important role in the analysis and understanding of college culture in contemporary America."--Back cover
The higher education system : academic organization in cross-national perspective by Burton R Clark( Book )

28 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Basic elements of the higher education system are considered, along with variations across nations (the United Kingdom, Sweden, Japan, Italy, France, the Federal Republic of Germany, Australia, Canada, the United States, Poland, Yugoslavia, Mexico, and Thailand). Three basic elements of the organization of higher education system are identified: the way work tasks are arranged, primary norms and values, and the distribution of legitimate power throughout the system. Attention is directed to: national support structures for academics; the organization of academic work around knowledge; the division of academic labor by discipline and by sectors/institutional types; the foundations of academic beliefs and disciplinary points of view; integration in higher education through bureaucracy, politics, professions, and the market; and the way in which change occurs, including the contradiction between discipline and system, and the process of differentiation. The efforts of internal interest groups to do their work, protect their functions, and react to pressure are also addressed. It is concluded that the clash of social values in higher education will require considerable adjustments, and the systems most likely to prosper will be those that divide power, support variety, and allow ambiguity.

Creating entrepreneurial universities : organizational pathways of transformation by Burton R Clark( Book )

32 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on field research carried out over a two year period, this book describes processes of transformation that took place over a fifteen year period in five European universities. Five common features identified - described as "organizational pathways of transformation"--Are highlighted and used to frame the case-study accounts. These pathways consist of: a strengthened steering core; an extended developmental periphery; a diversified funding base; a stimulated academic heartland; and an entrepreneurial culture. Taken together, these elements help universities overcome the growing imbalance between environmental demands and university capacity to respond that is now occurring in universities internationally. As universities come under greater pressure to change their traditional character and become more innovative and entrepreneurial, the successful implementation of new managerial perspectives is important if they are to succeed. Reconciling these changes with traditional academic values provide the concepts on which the case studies are based. -- from publisher description

Academic power in the United States : comparative historic and structural perspectives by Burton R Clark( Book )

8 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nature and structure of academic power in American higher education is described and compared with the British and Continental modes of academic organization. Structured power is described as providing influence to certain groups, systematically backing certain values and viewpoints at the same time subordinating others, and determining whether activities will be influenced by monopolistic or pluralistic forms of participation. The analysis concluded that the general structure of higher education in the United States is appropriate for the wide range of training opportunities needed to extend higher education to all that can benefit from it.

Students and colleges : interaction and change by Burton R Clark( Book )

7 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of differential student recruitment and of changes in student characteristics at 3 highly selective, distinguished liberal arts colleges; 3 church-related colleges; and 2 large public institutions. The findings indicate how students changed from institution to institution in relation to their characteristics at entrance. These characteristics included educational and vocational values; religious, political, and civic attitudes; personality characteristics; and intellectual disposition. Intellectual disposition was a construct and continuum in which one extreme represented broad intellectual and esthetic interests, theoretical orientation, and intellectual independence, and the other extreme represented a practical orientation, conventional and less flexible forms of thought, and lack of esthetic interests. The only statistically significant evidence of differential change in intellectual disposition was the percentage of students in one of the elite colleges who changed from a pronounced pragmatic to a pronounced theoretical orientation over the 4 years. The report of the study summarizes changes on the several scales of the Omnibus Personality Inventory and changes in attitudes and values. (Author/HS)
